2008 Kathryn Kennedy Cabernet Sauvignon Small Lot Cabernet

Wine Description

(From 2006 Vintage)

Top 100 Wines 2010, Cabernet and Merlot, San Francisco Chronicle:

"The esteemed Saratoga winery pays tribute to its dot-com neighbors with this effort blended from tiny parcels - wine from nearby backyards, essentially. It's bright, pure-fruited Cab that's charming now with floral berry fruit, plus deeper scents of violets, cassis and charred herbs."

Winemaker Notes

Our knowledge of the Santa Cruz Mountains allowed us to access grapes from superior small vineyards. These growers include residential homeowner who’s grapes arrive at the crush pad in very small lots.

Warmer growing conditions on the inland side of the coast range have proven to yield superb Cabernet. Limited to 600 cases this wine was vinified using the same small scale techniques we employ for our other great wines. In the hands of a seasoned Cabernet specialist like Marty Mathis, the results are extraordinary.

Kathryn was a pioneering female in the CA wine industry. Her brand was one of the first to bear a woman’s name. Her location was unusual too. Although Saratoga had a stellar wine history in the 1880s, by the 1970s it was far from Napa and off the map to all but the most astute.
